If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Oracle Cloud Platform, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. We're new to the cloud, so we need more time to evaluate its capabilities.
We run different applications on the Oracle Cloud platform and use the cloud deployment model. We use the solution quite extensively on a daily basis. Oracle is a good option for enterprise-level companies, but for small and medium-sized businesses, I'd recommend another option. I'd rate the solution six out of ten.
This is a product that I recommend. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
We have some customers with private cloud services where they own the machines. We also work with customers that utilize the public cloud from Oracle for deploying applications and databases. I would rate Oracle products overall at an eight out of ten but this product at a seven out of ten simply because of not being able to easily deploy to other technologies.
My advice would be, if you have enough to invest in Oracle, I would recommend going for it. If an organization has OBI, Oracle Business Intelligence reporting platform, which is quite mature, and they want to move into cloud, Oracle's a good fit for them because it's easier to move. If you don't have anything set and you don't have that much of investment in Oracle, I wouldn't recommend it. I would recommend Amazon because of the sheer fact that it's a much more stable integration. You get a lot more options. You can play a lot more in terms of upscaling or downscaling the solution. I would rate it a six or seven out of ten.
My advice to others would be to take more time to deploy and to try and automate the deployment process. Due to the lack of proper documentation and complexity, as well as the poor tech support, I will rate this solution a six out of ten.
I would give the solution a rating of 8 out of 10. I would like it if maybe they could create a curriculum for Java, if they can integrate a curriculum for learning Java specifically, for the certification. The Oracle certification for Java. I'm using it to teach kids how to code.
If people are looking for a cloud solution I recommend Oracle, but there is one thing which is very challenging to us: with Oracle, there are many options packages. You can get extreme performance and other things, but it's really costly and that needs to be paid extra for on the plan. Overall, I give Oracle Cloud Platform an 8/10. Because our consultant showed us how to use Oracle for our service, that was very beneficial. From the team I come from for my product support also I can say 8/10 for OCP.
